ANCYL prepares for elective congress

2011-02-18 20:42

Johannesburg - Preparations are underway for the ANC Youth League's elective conference in June, the league said on Friday.

The league's national executive committee would visit provinces and regions to "take members through" processes and requirements for delegates to attend the conference, said ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu in a statement.

The Mail and Guardian on Friday reported that nominations for the congress were officially opened this week.

The report said ANCYL Gauteng chairperson, Lebogang Maile's campaign to challenge ANCYL president Julius Malema for the presidency was endorsed by senior ANC leaders, including President Jacob Zuma.

Shivambu said visits to the provinces and regions would "include an emphasis that no member of the ANCYL would disrupt meetings and processes of the ANCYL in preparation for the 24th National Congress".

League elective conferences have in the past been marred by chaotic scenes - from the congress in which Malema was crowned to provincial gatherings in the Eastern Cape and Limpopo.

Shivambu said the NEC would release its documents on nationalisation of the mines, organisational renewal, the constitutional review document and the ANCYL induction manual on Friday.

Other documents would be released in March.
